>Synopsis: BTX 1.02 crashes on boot
>Arrival-Date: Thu Sep 30 17:50:01 UTC 2010
>Release: Every Release that has BTX 1.02
HP Compaq 6005 Pro Microtower
- AMD Phenom II X4 Processor B93 (2.8 GHz, 8 MB total cache)
- Chipset AMD 785G
- Everything is SATA (CD-ROM and HD)
I want to install FreeBSD on this machine (HP) and when I boot, it stops on message below:
Attempting Boot From CD-ROM
CD Loader 1.2
Building the boot loadar arguments
Looking up /BOOT/LOADER... found
Relocating the loader and the BTX
Starting the BTX loader
BTX loader 1.00 BTX version is 1.02
Note the cursos blinking upon the last phrase. Keyboard not answer my calls. I test too plugging a pendrive with FreeBSD without success, having the same results.
For suspects from chipset and SATA controllers, i've changed some settings on BIOS (SATA emulator: RAID, IDE Native, IDE "Legado" and SATA) and all of changes has the same result.
I've tested others FreeBSD (the LiveCD ones) and I make it boot, but the FreeBSD's version was 4.3 and I need the last one (8.1). I note that LiveCD's BTX version was 1.01. So I downloaded others old versions that has the same version and works too (every old FreeBSD's has the same BTX version 1.01).
I tried to mix the loader of the old boot to the new boot, without success. The message was "BTX halted". I think that is not the right way to do this.
Just boot the newer versions of FreeBSD that has BTX loader 1.02 on HP Compaq 6005 Pro Microtower to view the message.
To fix the problem is study the case and fix. I'm not developer, so I can't help you.
